The NFL announced its 2022 compensatory draft picks, and the Indianapolis Colts were awarded two such picks: a fifth round pick (No. 179) and sixth round pick (No. 216), as a result of the team’s compensatory free agents lost during the 2021 offseason.

During last offseason, the Colts lost defensive lineman Denico Autry, quarterback Jacoby Brissett, and linebacker Anthony Walker in free agency, while adding offensive tackle Sam Tevi (who never played a snap after suffering a season-ending torn ACL).

Already without their 2022 first round pick, the Colts will gain a few additional draft picks to hopefully find difference makers during ‘Day 3’ of this year’s NFL Draft.
